Driving a little farther than my comfort zone in the San Fernando Valley is never a problem if the destination is a great restaurant. Before being introduced to this gem by my friend Nicole, I had searched for the perfect tortas. Most were too salty, not spicy enough, too mushy, etc.
At Tacos Y Tortas Guadalajara, I found my perfect tortas restaurant. Their tortas: pork marinated and cooked to perfection inside of a fresh roll covered in a wonderful chili sauce and beans topped with onions. If I had a bigger stomach I would have eaten two, unfortunately I had to stop after my first.
For the two of us--two tortas and two drinks (horchatas made fresh daily), the bill was less than $15. In addition to the wonderful tortas, they serve authentic mole with beef and bacon, menudo, as well as tacos and burritos for the unadventurous. The menu is in Spanish but donít worry, the staff speaks perfect English. Parking is a bit of a headache but itís worth it.
